SAFEagent is urging all landlords and tenants to be gas safe and choose their letting agent wisely, during the third annual Gas Safety Week (16 – 22 September).
It can be a matter of life and death as badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. By looking for a letting agent which is Gas Safe, landlords and tenants can be confident that gas appliances in their rented properties are checked annually and regularly serviced by registered engineers.
